Stake your MATIC

We have made a separate testnet version of Polygon Liquid Staking on Polygon Testnet (opens in a new tab)!
Anybody interested to test Liquid Staking without spending mainnet MATIC, come and try it!

Make sure you have a small surplus of MATIC or ETH to pay the gas fees for the staking transaction.
Normally, it is around 0.0005 ETH and a fraction of MATIC, but may vary depending on the transaction complexity and network transaction load.
Ankr deducts a technical service fee of 5% from your staking reward, each reward cycle.

There are no more new stakes getting aMATICb token. However, old stakes with aMATICb keep generating you rewards. You can also switch aMATICb for ankrMATIC now (opens in a new tab) (supply is limited).

  1. Visit Ankr Staking (opens in a new tab).
  2. Locate the Polygon (MATIC) box and click Stake in it. Click Stake in Polygon (MATIC) box
  3. Select network to stake on: Ethereum (regular unstaking time and technical service fee) or Polygon (instant unstaking, higher technical service fee). Select network to stake on
  4. Enter the desired amount to stake and click Approve to allow Ankr Staking smart contracts to unstake for you. Enter an amount and click Approve
  5. Confirm your approval in MetaMask. Confirm your approval
  6. Click Get ankrMATIC (ex-aMATICc). Click Unstake
  7. Confirm the transaction in your wallet. Confirm staking transaction
  8. Add the liquid staking token to your wallet, clicking Add ankrMATIC. Click Add to add the token to your wallet
  9. Click Go to dashboard to see the added token. You may need to wait a little for the transaction to finalize and Dashboard to automatically update. Click Go to dashboard

To reflect your staking rewards, your ankrMATIC keeps growing in price to MATIC, never changing in number.
